Very excited to start releasing performances from The Hogtown Hang on January 8. We put together a trailer to showcase a few of the highlights from our fantastic line-up (eg. +Candice Sand +chris birkett +Angela Saini +Andie Trepanier +Melanie Peterson  +Neil Murchison) . Please help us support the unsigned artist community in Toronto and share widely. We'll be holding another of these soon!

This is gonna be awesome! A one-day hangout for unsigned musicians, in one of Toronto's coolest studios, +Wanted Sound + Picture. Invited to join us for the hang will be a gaggle of music business mentors, including label reps, promoters, journalists, radio professionals and management, to view performances and offer guidance on best career practices.

Ever heard of +Akim Triebsch, our featured Unsigned Artist this week ? Monumentally talented singer-songwriter from Toronto who makes a living with his music in Europe. This is just one of many great songs from Avontuur Transmission, an album he wrote at sea crewing on a merchant vessel. You hear a sample the boat's salty Dutch captain dispensing one of his many pearls of worldly wisdom at the beginning of the track.

A blast from the past! Friends have been telling me for 5 years that they saw me on Equator or Oasis HD but until today, I'd never seen this myself! Thanks to the folks at Blue Ant Media for digging it up, and to Daphne Vaz for putting the process in motion!

Takes some stones to pay tribute to an iconic track by +Nine Inch Nails that was later covered by +Johnny Cash but I think Toronto musician and producer +chris birkett does a pretty fine job of it, in the second +Mediazoic release from #TheHogtownHang - http://mzoic.com/chris-birkett-hogtown-hang

This is a guest post I wrote for +Music Canada on why I think the recent ruling on streaming rates in Canada is unfair to artists.
The following is a guest blog by Greg Nisbet, Founder & CEO of Toronto-based digital music company Mediazoic: Made-in-Toronto music biz legend Bob Ezrin recently wrote about the Copyright Board ruling on Tariff 8, speculating that it may be “The Day The Music Died”. In the piece, he states the following: Perhaps the worst result …

Can music streaming models be profitable? The question is posed in this Globe & Mail article, as one of the world's best-known streaming music services hits Canada, and I put in my two cents.
By one estimate, from the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry, streaming music revenue jumped about 50 per cent last year, while digital music downloads dropped 2 per cent

Story
Tagline
Storyteller, Music Missionary, Social Entrepreneur
Introduction
I am a storyteller, music missionary, and social entrepreneur. I speak five languages besides English at varying degrees of fluency, each well enough to carry on a conversation but none well enough to convince my kids to do household chores without being asked.

I am the founder of Mediazoic, a next-generation music and media organization, based in Toronto, whose mission is to bring together like-minded people, both digitally and physically, with outstanding, highly-curated content. We are actively building a growing network of operations that includes Internet radio stations, live events, content development and licensing, and infrastructure for artist publicity and promotion.
Bragging rights
I'm hard to kill. Attempts on my life have been made over the years by two elephants, one crocodile, one black mamba snake, salmonella, malaria, two soldiers with AK-47s, a land-mined stretch of road, and cancer. As far as I can tell, each has been unsuccessful.
